A wedding card, and some EXCITING news!!!

Good morning! I have some EXCITING news that I have been waiting to announce, but first, I wanted to share a card that I actually  made a couple of weeks ago. A good friend asked me to make her a wedding card for a friend, using the colors pink, black, and white, and some kind of a funky and fun cake. is what I came up with:

I used a cake from Sweet Treats, skewed it a bit on my Gypsy so it tilted to the right, and put it on a cake stand from Straight from the Nest. The frame is from Elegant Edges, and the edge punch is a Martha Stewart border punch. Sentiment was a random one from my stash...not sure who it is by. I had a REALLY hard time making the picture show the right color, but it really is a pretty and bright pink! for my exciting news!!! I actually have a bunch of exciting things coming up in October - can hardly wait!!! First, I have been keeping it under my hat, but am now free to share, that I was asked to be a guest designer for Scrappy Moms Stamps for the month of October!!!

I also have my guest design week for Peachy Keen Stamps during the week of October 17- 21! And I know I will have a giveway that week also!!!

And finally...October 20th is my 1 year Blogaversary!!! I have had so much fun over this past year and enjoying this journey and all the new friends I have met!!! So I have been collecting a BUNCH of my favorite things to giveaway to celebrate that! You'll have to wait until then to see everything, but I already have a Cricut cartridge, some Peachy Keen Stamps, some Unity Stamps, some paper pads...really a bunch of my favorite things that I use all time and want to share with you!!! you know to be ready for that! I will probably do it the weekend or week after my Peachy Keen guest design week, just because it might get a little crazy otherwise!!!

Enjoy your day today - I might be a little absent in the next day or two, as my husband is having a little minor day surgery today, and will be home the rest of the week! Praying that everything goes well and he heals quickly though! Bye for now!!!
